The production book

| 7 Comments

productionbook.jpgEach of my major projects has its own ring binder to help me keep organized.

Something about putting together a new one fills me with happiness. Maybe shopping for the supplies reminds me of every new school year in my childhood--crisp sheets of blue-ruled filler paper, tabbed dividers, the selection of binders. Do I need a new ruler? New pens, definitely.

Or maybe its the hope and promise that all new endeavors bring. Heading into unexplored possibilities is thrilling. So many interesting experiences ahead and obstacles to be overcome. Ideas will overflow these pages, I'm sure.

My Hello Tokyo production book was once shiny and new. Now it's a well loved, battered, and filthy collection of notes, scribbles and memories of frustrations and triumphs.

Today, the production book for "the project that will not be named" is pristine like freshly fallen snow. Tomorrow, I'll start making tracks in it.

The joy of neatly putting things away into a nice, fresh binder is certainly related to the glee of buying new stationary, pens, and any other office accessory.

I'm in college now, burning myself out with work, and I still get excited when the semester starts. New school supplies! Hurrah~

It could be the geek-factor. It could be my obsessive-compulsive tendencies towards being organized and clean. Starting off organized seems to help bring things into focus... right before the chaos hits and things fall apart.

By the way, the accompanying picture is very striking for me (for whatever reason). If I had the time, I'd probably be reorganizing my desktop right now. I'm sure I'll end up doing just that when I get back at the end of the day.

As long as you keep that coffee mug filled, the rest will take care of itself.

Embarking on a new adventure (full of promise and challenge) to whereever it might lead is always thrilling..

Make tracks, then fall back into it and make an angel.

You are SO tidy! *eyespilesonherowndesk*

yeah, she is tidy, isn't she? I'm jealous. My room suffers from everything-itis.

But, I'm going to go to the gym now, instead of stopping everything to try to clean up.
darnit:-)

What've you got on your bookshelf? Could do with one of those Blade-Runner multi-zoomy-inny things here...

Just next to the three project notebooks is a copy of Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets, then a little pink book called CVS Pocket References, and a small notebook and the master copy of the Hello Tokyo DVD. Out of sight on the other side of my monitor are the Final Cut Pro manuals, an English dictionary, two J/E dictionaries and two Japanese grammar dictionaries. That just what's on my desk...the library in the closet has a whole lot more...
